Trademark squatting has begun in Russia.

On March 12th, a trademark application was filed for the McDonald’s logo with the words “Uncle Vanya.”

The Russian State Duma had earlier suggested that Russia would replace all McDonald’s with “Uncle Vanya’s.”

Russia wants to launch its IKEA counterpart. They even applied to Rospatent for registration of the trademark “IDEYA” (rus. for IDEA).
